5:23am
different than the others? >> well, i think the obvious answer really is a simple one and that is the difference between every talk show host. so you got katie and steve and ricki and me. and what i'm doing is a show that is of me. i did some test shows early where i thought let's do topic driven, bring an expert, here are four points to change your eating habits and it wasn't for mow. i was bored. we cranked on the a format where we take variation ozzie atheme -- variations on a theme each day. could could be three women who changed their stories. here are three stories about a bank, a bank robber, a bank teller and a story bay piggy bank. you alooking for stories that excite me and somehow move me and keep moving. there is a short attention span that we all have now. it is kind of like i get, it
5:24am
give me the next one. >> that should be interesting. so it will be different every day. there will be some recurring features on your show. talk about those. >> guys on the couch, i grab two guys from the audience and we answer questions from women. usually about sex and relationships because what else is there? and then for ambush adventure, we start the show typically not knowing who we'll ambush and we find within the show, which is a very risky and exhilarating way to do a talk show. but what the adventure is it is something you need no your life. you need to step outside of your comfort zone a little bit. so in our first show, which aired today, we had a woman who, during guys on the couch, said my boyfriend broke up with me. i think it is because i make more money. does this ring true. we talked about. it as we dug deeper, what came out was i don't know why he
5:25am
broke up with me but i love him and i know he loves me. at the end of the show, i bring her back. here is how the adventure works. have you to say yes before you know what it is and if you say yes, you mutt complete it and if you don't, you disappoint not only me but yourself. she says yes and so i pull out a phone and we call her boyfriend. it is pretty rivetting because here is this beautiful young woman saying i love you. what happened and he tell her in no uncertain terms what went down. and at the end, she says jeff was like a father figure. i didn't have a father figure. i needed it because i was killing myself worrying about this guy. so that is kind of a serious one but that is the idea. >> it sounds like it is going to be an adventure in and of itself. are there some similarities when you look at obviously you are the executive producer and host of survivor, a well loved show. are there some similarities that you took from survivor and
5:26am
to put into use in your new show? >> you know, the one similarity i think is that life is an adventure. that is how i feel. it is how i felt as long as eye i. understood the concept, that this is it. that clock you hear, that is the clock of life. so what do you want to do? people come onto survivor typically because they need something. they need to get their butt kicked or they need to discover something or be tested and the stories i'm telling on this show, we're trying to connect to people at home, typically moms who are already out of their mind. i just got married and two kids came into our marriage that are amazing so now i can appreciate that. that is the idea. what do you want your life to be? who are you? >> and good luck to jeff probst on his new show. coming up, some scary moments for local toddlers. ahead, details of what happened during a fire drill that sent
5:27am
those toddlers to the emergency room. >> up next, all your top stories plus weather and traffic. stay with us as we take a live look right now at the pentagon. a memorial service set to get under way to remember 9-11 at 9:30 this morning. the president and first lady will be attending that and we will carry it here live. back after this. when you first got internet at home you probably had one thing online. but today, everything's online. in a few years, the number of devices in your home will double and what we are doing online takes internet speed, not every network can handle it, verizon fios is 100% fiber optic so it's faster and can handle it. and now there's revolutionary fios quantum speed, more than twice as fast as anything this country has ever seen. to get your family up to speed with fios quantum -- call the verizon center for customers with disabilities go to verizon.com/fiosquantum. at 800.974.6006 tty/v.
